Director-General of Think Nigeria First Initiative (TNFI) Abubakar Tsanni yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immortalise Hajiya Fadimatu Mai Talle Tara Koko, the old woman that donated N1 million towards his presidential campaign in 2015.
The 90-year-old woman died nearly three weeks ago in her home town, Koko, Koko/Besse Local Government Area of Kebbi State, where she was a popular food vendor.
She was a widow who left behind 15 children and 15 grandchildren to mourn her.
In a statement issued, yesterday, Tsanni said a major street or building in any part of Nigeria should be named after Mai Talle Tara, so that her starling qualities of love for democracy, selflessness and sacrifice will not be forgotten.
The statement said: “Of course, many glowing tributes have been poured on the late Mai Talle Tara, especially within the first week of her death. However, since then, almost everything about her is gradually fading away and this is not good for Nigeria.
“There is the need for President Muhammadu Buhari and governor of her home state to immortalize her. We want her legacy celebrated and written in gold so that when the generation yet unborn asked why a street was named after the woman, they would be told of the sacrifice she made at the height of Nigeria’s transition to greatness.”
